The U.K’s ambassador to the U.S., Kim Darroch, has resigned following the leak of secret cables in which he described the President Donald Trump administration as “uniquely dysfunctional” and “inept.”

Trump slammed back saying, “We’re not big fans of that man. The ambassador has not served the UK well, I can tell you that. I can say things about him but I won’t bother.”

Extracts of the leaked cables were published by a U.K. newspaper on Sunday, prompting a row with the U.S. over Darroch’s comments about Trump and the White House.

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May had defended Darroch, saying she had “full faith” in him, but the ambassador said in a statement that the “current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role.”
